[Mono-dev] Custom messaging provider doesn't seem to work

Mono.Messaging allows you to specify a custom messaging provider in the MONO_MESSAGING_PROVIDER appsetting. But it appears only to work with the RabbitMQ provider that’s packaged with Mono. Any value other than the pre-approved provider class name (or its alias) makes MessagingProviderLocator throw an exception in the static constructor. (1)

Is this intentional or is it a bug/missing feature? Would a patch to allow any custom IMessagingProvider be welcomed?
